The remainder of this article contains lore created collaboratively by the Blaseball community.
After the incineration (and some would argue return to the ether) of Hendricks Rangel, Basilio Fig stepped onto the field. As a sentient palm tree growing near one of the Fridays' most frequented playing spots, Fig had already been a fan of blaseball for quite some time. At the very moment that Rangel's physical form released, Our Lady of Perpetual Friday graced Fig with a renewed vigor in their roots, allowing them to stride across the field and join the Fridays.
Eyewitnesses say that each time Fig steps up to bat time seems to slow. In that instant a pair of muscular arms grow from their barklike torso allowing them to swing their bat.
Fig is close friends with a family of toucans that were blown into their upper branches by a passing storm. Fridays player Fletcher Yamamoto can be found nesting with Fig on their days off together.
Career as a Taco
Fig settled quickly in the infinite Los Angeli, helped in part by the similarly tropical climate. They found a new home on Figueroa Street, which is now and has always been named for them. Fellow Tacos teammate Basilio Mason has yet to comment on no longer being the only Basilio on the team, but Fig expressed that they were "happy to be a part of the Tacos name sharing tradition."
The Many Faces of Basilio Fig
Fig and the Figlings
Resembling a queen palm, Basilio Fig originated on the Hawaiian islands, spotted by the Fridays for its slightly flowing palm frond hair towering above the coastline. This tree's seedpods growing in it's palms are known to drop to the ground and wander the islands, often playing Blaseball and planting new Figs, all identifiable from their signature frond flower hair.
Utilizing a Feedback storm above the stadium, one of the Fig seedlings joined the Tacos with the goal of spreading more trees across the infinite Los Angeli, and engaging in local environmentalist initiatives. This Fig, often seen with teammate Alejandro Leaf, frequents beach cleanups and green activism, and works to maintain gardens surrounding Al Pastor Memorial Stadium.
Games against the Fridays often involve large sections of Figs among the audience, usually cheering in silence but waving their palm fronds back and forth to express their support of both teams, annoying those seated behind them. Basilio reportedly enjoys this chance to see large groups of it's family, and the rest of the Tacos seem to be more than comfortable with doppelgangers, accustomed to Dovenpart's doppelganger and the varying Alternate Realities across LA's rifts.
